LOL Whoops: Pirates Broadcaster Read a Fake, Joking Joe Maddon Quote on the Air

Chicago Cubs

People like to joke on Twitter about widely-discussed sports topics. Did you know this? Of course you knew this. You’d be able to spot a joke, right?

Like a joke about the Anthony Rizzo slide thing, and Joe Maddon’s insistence that it was a good play:

Humorous enough, and obviously a joke. Well, obvious unless you’re a Pirates broadcaster:

That’s some kind of amazing right there. We’ve all made oopsies like that before, and maybe the broadcaster thought Maddon, himself, was joking in some way. But still … it’s a little embarrassing.

I expect Willson Contreras to be hit two or three times in tonight’s game to repay this insult.
